A little bit about my car - an Audi TT - and the non-hairdressery-y things I've done with it...
I'm lucky enough to own a 2005 Mk1 Audi TT - basically a Mk4 Golf with impractically-small rear seat space. I've had it for a little over two years now and its been a lot of fun to own and work on.
It's a four-wheel-drive model with Volkswagen's 3.2 litre VR6 engine powering it, and a flappy-paddle semi-automatic gearbox, which means that if I were a hairdresser (and I'm not mainly because I'm not safe around sharp things like scissors...), I would be able to get from appointment to appointment very quickly, accompanied by a very nice exhaust note.
I call my car "Shed" because, before this car, I owned no less than three Ford Fiestas, all of which were in various states of repair. The first was the least-tidy, and ended its life spray-painted black (by me); because of its slightly tatty appearance, I christened it "Shed". Subsequent cars were logically known as Sheds 2 and 3, and as the Audi is my fourth car, I call it Shed 4.
The main changes I've made to it are handling upgrades; this is because, as standard, the V6 TT with the auto gearbox is very very nose-heavy (and generally heavy, too, at 1.6 tonnes), so it's infamous for understeering and generally being a bit of a sod to handle.
These upgrades include...
A few other odds and ends have been changed, mainly for cosmetic reasons, because I'm vain like that... =o)
Things which have broken or are on their way out include...
I might, if I stop being a lazy sod, post up a couple of picture of all of these time-wasting changes I've made on Shed over the last couple of years.
Then again, maybe I should just get out and drive the damned thing :-)
